[NGD] PGM 500

This guitar is beautiful! Has some marks and dings but hey, it's a players guitar and I plan to play on it a ton.

The red is probably the best looking red I have ever seen on a guitar. The action on this one is super low which make playing it feel like, well...like a knife through butter if that makes sense....

I can't speak for other PGM's but if you don't own one, you're missing out!

Nice! I didn't know the cavity cover was shaped like that on the PGM. I guess I've never seen the back of one before. Cool.

Very thin necks on those puppies, though. I was pretty shocked when I played a PGM500 and felt how thin it was.

The stock truss rod cover on them is cream colored, mine had a black truss rod cover so I am assuming it is. It was sitting around Guitar Center San Marcos for months not being sold. I have another 500 that is incredibly mint to the point that an employee at Guitar Center thought it was a new guitar.

You bastard... LOL! Jealous. This ones got dings and chips! Also it has some issues bending strings on the higher frets (15 is bad) and the input jack is kind of noisy if the plug moves around. If you don't mind me asking, how much did they give you for it? They originally tried to sell it for 1200 so I am guess 650ish?

I'm debating returning it because it is hard but bend on the E-string up high but I LOVE THIS GUITAR. I don't want to give it up but would prefer one in better condition. Hard decisions for me to make...

Want to sell me your mint one? :P
